On June 12, 2015, Wilberforce Elementary School hosted a celebration of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Culture. The day featured workshops, hand-on activities, and guest-speakers. Students enjoyed learning about workshops such as:
Visual Arts and Pointillism: A great opportunity for students to explore their creative side. They worked on producing original works of art.
Drumming: A chance to practice traditional drumming with a special guest.
Music: Students learned about traditional music and performed with a larger group at the Lloyd Watson Centre.
Netty Dolls: Fabric and tablecloth material was used to make Netty Dolls.
Cooking: Students made their own dough and baked bannock bread. Of course they got to taste their own creations, too!
Trapping: The Minden District Fur Harvesters gave students the opportunity to look at and identify different types of fur, traps, and harvesting methods.
